Stéphane returns to his hometown, La Louvière, to watch a football match with his childhood friends. At the end of the match, they manage to persuade Stéphane to go with them on a trip to a Flemish nightclub. But Stéphane is refused entry.

TONDEX 2000 28 min Jean-Baptiste Leonetti France 2023

Sylvain, an Afghan veteran living off of petty crime, crosses paths with Nathalie, an upper-class CEO struggling to keep her lawnmower company afloat.

SHARING 14 min Natalia Sara Skorupa Poland 2021

We are awarding a film about family and differences between each of its members, in which the author, despite not being present on the screen, exposes her everyday life – for sharing her inspiring courage and perpetuating the universal experience associated with the struggle to maintain one’s own identity.

ARQUITECTURA EMOCIONAL 1959 30 min. Elias León Siminiani France 2023

Here is the love story of Sebas and Andrea, first-time university students, in the 1958-1959 academic year. Here is how social class and ideology become insurmountable obstacles?… Here is architecture marking, inadvertently, the dotted line that ends up dictating its emotion.

IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN…? 4 min Jens Rosemann Germany 2021 

On a beautiful summer day, Sven is finally going to take the plunge: to jump from the ten-metre board. But first a shower. Now he’s ready, but … perhaps better tomorrow?
